Houston Outdoors LIVE Camping 101
May 24, 2017 @ 6:45 pm - 7:45 pmFree
Each week we take a topic, drill down as quick and deep as we can, to get you up to speed and out playing. We’ll take Q&A after the presentation to help guide everyone into outdoor summer fun mastery.
Houston may not be known as a camping mecca, but just travel an hour any direction, and you can find yourself sleeping under the stars. Join us for Camping LIVE where you’ll learn what you need to about camping to make you feel like a pro (or at least an Eagle Scout)! Ever heard “car camping, primitive camping, backpacking?” We’ve got you covered, and you’ll be picking your site with confidence in no time at all. We’ll also review the equipment you need and don’t need, demonstrate different tents, set up and our favorite camping gear.
Topics we cover:
– Tent Setup 101 – plus using stakes, guy wires and why you need to
– What to take and what leave at home
– The best campsite and how to find them
– Taking non-campers camping
– Cooking at camp
– Dutch oven cooking
– Dealing with predators
– Our favorite camping spots
You’ll also be able to download the free #10Essentials for Camping that evening – we promise to get you camp in style! The tip sheet designed to cover camping 101 to pro tips plus a few of our favorite Dutch Over Recipes to salivate over. Take it on the road! Memorial weekend is a perfect time to get out of the city and camp under the stars.
